Notes from the field, essays, and observations.
A small, pretty yellow wildflower – though you may just think of it as oxalis, a weed you pull from your lawn:
Taken over the summer. It’s an in-between season here – the fall color is mainly gone, but it’s still warm, no hard frosts or snow yet.
Nice! love the colours and way other elements of flower r out of focus in the background
Beautiful strong yellow. And the background vaguery of greens is lovely.
Thanks – finding the right role for the background elements is what makes a simple image like this challenging. My favorite gambit these days is vaguery, melting the background stuff so it’s out of focus.
Lovely to see a flower now that all my flowers are dead.
Same story here as well, most blooms are wilted. I might be able to find some asters or butter-and-eggs blooming in a protected nook somewhere…
Vaguery. 🙂 I like the sound of that, Tom. 🙂 I like the look of this too. I think the balance between the subject and the oof background blooms are very nice. It gives one a sense of the shape of the flower stalk without demanding too much attention.
Thanks, Steve – hinting the context, context by implication is the idea. “Vaguery” says it better…
I like the off-center placement of the flower, which is balanced by the out-of-focus bud in the upper right.
A very pretty close-up. Have a few of these scattered around the yard.
tiny beauty 🙂
Master at all.
